Have you tried making your own EQ presets?
I haven't. The Volume Logic Plug-in says it isn't compatible with Intel macs yet so I guess I can't use it yet.

By all means redirect me if you've already covered this- but I just bought myself a new mac laptop so that I could DJ more easily (compared to ipod or lugging my big old bubble mac around) and I'm a bit confused as to which file type and sampling rate I should go with in itunes. Naturally, I don't w...

And my sister, who is now a professional jazz singer, got her start from Teddy Ruxpin of all places. He had her singing jazz standards when she was 4!

At the Steven and Virginie weekend in Rochester last year, Steven did a Q&A session. A guy asked him why there aren't more african-americans dancing lindy anymore. Steven's answer included (roughly) that the way dances are officiated is very clean/dry/quiet and he thought that DJ's should make an ef...
